"I absolutely loved Detective #440. The reprints were what really made those 100 pagers. So many great old characters that I loved like Johnny Quick, the Vigilante and others I discovered through those comics. "

Jeff of Earth-J replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Randy Jackson Re-Reads Steve Gerber's Howard the Duck
"THE ESSAY ISSUE: I'm still not quite sure what to make of the "text" issue. the very last thing in it is a "fan letter" Gerber wrote to himself. I pretty much agree with what he said in that."

"The only Marvel Essential I bought was the HtD volume. There is a panel I noticed (still haven't re-read the whole series) that sticks in my mind. Some other-worldly image was printed (in the original comic) in color ink with no black linework.…"

"Let's talk format... ESSENTIAL: When I read HtD for the first time, it was (mostly) in "Essential" format,which includes Annual #1, Treasury Edition #12 and G.S. Man-Thing #4-5 as well as #1-27. What it does not include is Fear #19…"

"This time through I've taken note of how much fun Gerber has with the language. For example, this bit of narration... "Leaping from parapet to parapet paripatetically, the daring assassin flees the scene." ...or this bit of…"

"Sure. I've always thought of Howard the Duck as an indie/underground comic that somehow got published by a major publisher. "

Jeff of Earth-J replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Randy Jackson Re-Reads Steve Gerber's Howard the Duck
"Yeah, I agree. I think, on Howard, Gerber was doing [Marvel imprint] Epic before Epic existed. Howard could easily be a stand-alone satire wholly separate from the Marvel Universe proper. It's kind of an odd duck (pun obviously intended) in the…"

Hello Mr. Jackson. You offer an interesting idea of "the four just men" as maybe-inspiration of the Joker's crimes in Batman #1. So, what do you think, where does that pirating-radio-to-send-threat-idea in 1940 comes from? Thank you very much
